This is just a quick post to say that I attended a three-day Career Advantage - Global Collaborations workshop for RHD students at UQ, and loved pretty much every minute of it! Topics ranged from developing career opportunities, creating networks (not networking, thank goodness), understanding how international universities operate, and understanding how to interact with people from different cultural backgrounds (where culture can be nationality, sex, discipline etc...). I met a lot of friendly RHD students from other disciplines, and have also expanded my professional network. I would highly recommend this workshop to any RHD student looking to work overseas or collaborate with overseas colleagues. There are also another two packages on offer, Higher Education Practice and Leadership, and Research Innovation, Translation, and Commercialisation, which may be more suitable depending on particular research specialities and career directions.
